The LeBron Burger Phenomenon at Oneburger

LeBron James might not be able to
singlehandedly win an NBA championship, but the sentiment around
Miami is that he'll save the local economy.
Oneburger's "The Bron" burger is a
tasty place to begin this crusade, although it's still unknown whether
or not LeBron is receiving royalties for the lending of his name.
The $12.95 tribute to the reign of "King James" with the
Miami Heat turns things up a notch.
Construction of The Bron begins
with a kaiser roll. In the words of One Burger, "Kaiser is the
German word for KING. Also, Bron is crazy dangerous like Kaiser
Soze." Then comes the beef. In this case, Kobe beef to be exact.
Why Kobe beef on LeBron's burger? Because "Bron eats Kobe for
lunch. Make it a double and Bron eats Kobe for lunch and dinner."
Without requesting a temperature, my burger came out just the way I
like it, medium rare. So be sure to tell them to turn it into a
hockey puck if you so desire. Slap some Swiss cheese on top, as "Bron
likes his cheese, watches, chocolates, and bank accounts from
Switzerland." Then ask for an onion ring in anticipation of the championship
rings he'll win with the Heat, and we're almost there. Barbecue sauce
and mustard are added in good measure, and jalapenos turn this
burger's heat up as hot as Miami expects the Heat to be come this
fall with the addition of LeBron to D-Wade's team.
No word yet on if and when Chris Bosh
will get his own burger.
